Eh is an eight-year-old student from Thailand. Her family escaped from civil wars in their village in Burma and now reside in a refugee camp in Thailand. Eh is currently attending third grade but has missed school for a month due to her health condition. Eh says she likes playing with her sister.
In June 2018, Eh started to experience headaches. In August 2018, Eh started to have seizures daily, occurring two to four times a week. She has severe headaches and fevers.
Doctors want Eh to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Eh’s CT scan and care, scheduled for September 13.
Her father says, “I have to look after my child all the time. I have to take days off from work so that I could take care of her.”
